Required Reading

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Books I have authored.

Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

The Rooster Bar by John Grisham

This is the first Grisham I have read in years.  I don’t know if the interim books have been like this but this was a change of pace.  It was comedic, perhaps intentional, perhaps not.  Two clueless law school students and a somewhat less clueless cohort are the primary characters.  The law students are overwhelmed by debt and try and find a solution.

The solution includes many, many questionable decisions.  The problem of student debt and the willingness to loan kids far more money than their eventual career will be able to repay is current news.   Many kids today are still paying off student loans into their 5th decade.  The cost of higher education, not the quality, has soared.   This book peripherally address that issue.  

The humor comes from the blatant disregard for law and consequences from Todd and Mark.   Their approach to solving the problem while questionable was far more practical than their friend Gordy.

The book was an entertaining and light read.


This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
